This was a great track when we raced in the SM. Produced one of the best highlight vids with brunners cone killing.

Knowing which bumps to avoid will be key here :D

So does anyone want recommend me a new wheel?
I was just doing some practice and all of a sudden I hear this loud bang (heard it over the engine noise and music, with my headphones on) and suddenly I can't change gear at all. I just opened the wheel up and the plastic where the gear lever is attached has broken completely off and is now unusable. Just perfect...:cry:

I am running a chairty for the homeless in my area which has really taken off. Quite simply I will not have the time to get to grips with another new track so I wont be here.

Apologies.

Edit: This is a Christmas time appeal so wont be ongoing after that just FYI.

Thrustmaster T300 RS + F1 wheel add on. Very cheap for the quality you get there and coming from the G27 its a huge step forward. Or if money doesnt play a role Leo Bodnar SimSteering 2 :)

I wouldn't recommend the T300...I had one and my brother also had one... after a while it will start with random button mashes on the steering wheel...so if you have your pit limiter assigned to a button the car can go into the pit limiter at random....my brother has the same issue and I read more ppl have this issue...

don't know about the new fanatec wheelbase the Elite...it is much cheaper than the CSW v2...maybe a good alternative...or just the G29 I heard good stories about that also..

I have the G29 and it's pretty good. You might be able to find a second hand T500RS on ebay for a good price, but quality is kinda mixed for Thrustmaster ones, or at least the cheaper wheels. Fanatecs are pretty expensive.

I am away from home next week so that means that this race is my 86th and last race for now. I scrolled a bit through the S1 sign ups and found my first post here

Dec, 3 2014 - 2 years next Saturday unbelievable. If someone would have told me this day that i am doing 86 races here and only miss 7 races in the time of 2 years i am sure my girlfriend would have killed me instantly :).

Thanks @FisiFan91 and @Kptk92 for hosting the races every friday. Thats quite a amount of money you spend for hosting the races every friday. Thank you

I want to mention the drivers who did the first race with me and still driving here: @Kptk92, @McPhilen, @FisiFan91 ,@VICSALT , @Robert Plumley , @Leister-Meister and Jordan Howson. Thank you and of course everyone who signed up during the seasons and stayed here longer than for 1 or 2 races. I think my table gives a great overview of the drivers who are the ones you can build a league with.

Special thanks to @Erti147 and @frejo for hosting the thursday practices every week. That was a great opportunity for people who have not much time for practice during the week.

Also great that i was able to meet @Bruno Domiter , @Osterkamp , @Patrick Kessler , @Christian Koch , @Leister-Meister in real life and i am really looking forward to 2017 because we continue our meetings next year. (another track day + sim expo 2017).

As i am typing this right now i am already looking forward for more races with you here at AOR but for now i take a break ( which i need after 8 seasons straight) try out this BSR in January and see how it goes there and then in S2 2017 lets see if the 3.5 comes out and is enjoyable to drive and if i am not dominating the BSR series i am really looking forward to reunite with you guys and have many more seasons here.

For today i hope that i will not crash out in Lap 1 (like kerry last year in suzuka :) ) and make this last race another great friday like the last 85 before.

Thanks and see ya

@Mitti87 I wish you luck for your final race (for now)!
4th on the all-time list and as you say 86 races shows you've been a great asset to the league.
Enjoy your break :)

Thanks for the tip @Mitti87 and @Rin Hato . If I could justify the cost I would get a DD wheel right away, but at the moment I can't :greedy:, so I had a look at the t300rs amongst others and it looks like a solid wheel although that f1 add on wheel is a bit too much for now :p, so I will probably just get the "base" pack now and maybe I will upgrade later. Hopefully problems like @Lorrentz mentioned have been rectified since I guess its been a while since he bought the wheel. The g27 has been a good wheel, though there has been a few annoyances over the last couple of years so trying something new should be good!

In the meantime I'll be using buttons for gears so I'm sure I will miss some gears today :nailbiting:. Lets hope it doesn't end in tears!
